Review Notes: I picked this one up after reading the top cigars of 2005 article. I let it sit for a week to settle, then couldn't wait to smoke it. It looked nice, but have seen better. Construction looked solid, felt nice, but a bit of the wrapper was ripped. It didn't hurt but still. I lit it, and took a puff. Easy draw, like going through a straw, but that's it. A hint of woody-ness and felt full. After 3 puffs, the woodyness and smooth long full taste subsided to a more medium taste. After that, it went downhill fast. At first it tasted a bit like coffee but more bitter than actual coffee. After 2 puffs, the coffee disappeared completely and just had a long bitter aftertaste with no flavor otherwise. I thought it may be too hot so I left it sitting for a bit, and still, bitter. I cleared it out, but still bitter. I choked down til about halfway where I couldn't take it anymore, it just tasted horrible. It had a good strong ash that held but it doesn't matter if it doesn't taste good. I seriously hope I got a bad one. I will try this one more time because it's cheap but consider me not impressed at all.
